It looks like cars won’t be banned from Eden Quay. Officials had looked at diverting them, but a new report recommends that one lane should remain open to cars.
The change of heart came about because of concerns about congestion on the diverted routes and the impact on businesses in the city centre.
The proposals also suggest that there should be no right turn to O’Connell Street for general traffic.
Councillor Nial Ring is happy with the changes. He said: ''I'm not anti-public transport. I'm pro-motorist. I'm pro cyclist and I'm pro-pedestrian but most of all I'm pro my city, the town I was reared in and the city centre I represent. I want to see it thriving. I don't want to see anything that would impact negatively on it.''
However, Green Party Councillor Ciaran Cuffe disagrees with the decision. He said: ''I don't think pedestrians, cyclists and users of public transport should be seen as second class citizens. In a city where road space is very valuable, I think a tram with 400 people on it should have more rights to move than a car with one person in it.''
If the Council agrees on the changes they will be introduced in August.
